Marrakech Mint 50 Traditional Teabags
Out of stock
Gunpowder green tea with peppermint leaves, the traditional taste of the Marrakech medina in our traditional teabags.
We've blended our smoky Gunpowder Green with pure peppermint leaves, inspired by the tea served in the souks of the Moroccan medina. We've added a sprinkling of blue cornflower petals for a bit of a British touch.
Fired and rolled 'gunpowder' style green tea was one of the first teas the Chinese traded with the Arabs. It's since become particularly prevalent in North Africa, where the tea is traditionally blended with mint and served strong with heaps of sugar. You might like to enjoy our Marrakech Mint in the traditional style with honey or sugar, but we'd suggest brewing lightly to appreciate its nuanced flavour - it's a surprisingly refreshing way to cool off after a hard day's haggling.

Brew the Perfect cup
Ever since our founder Walter Whittard weighed out tea leaves behind his high mahogany counter, we've been experimenting with our own inventive blends. Today you'll find extraordinary creativity in our collection, from unique twists on classics like English Breakfast to more inventive blends laden with fruit and flowers.
Green tea's fresh, verdant taste is down to its processing: the leaves are heated shortly after picking, stopping the oxidation process that would eventually turn them into black tea. Some of the best green teas are found in Japan and China, where the techniques of firing or steaming the leaves have been perfected over many centuries. Find out more about green tea here.
